In a four-star review of Knotfest Melbourne 2023, NME shared: “Clown told NME that Knotfest would debut in Australia this year so that Slipknot could “burn down [our] brainwashed philosophy” and indoctrinate us with their own. If any of those among us weren’t already devout members of the Church Of Slipknot (aka Maggots, sometimes Heretics), they surely walked away last night as fresh converts. Considering all three editions sold out, it seems inevitable that Knotfest will return Down Under in 2024 – we’ll start stretching now.”

In other news, Slipknot recently co-headlined Sick New World Festival in Las Vegas on April 27 with a career-spanning setlist for which they donned their classic original masks and red boiler suits.

The Nine had also played in their classic outfits for an intimate club show last night (April 25) at the Pappy + Harriet’s barbecue bar in Pioneertown, California. The surprise gig had been announced one day prior to the show date on April 24.


The intimate gig marked Slipknot’s first concert with their new drummer – who is still unnamed – following the shocking firing of Jay Weinberg late last year. Their new drummer is heavily speculated to be former Sepultura percussionist Eloy Casagrande, thought the band have yet to confirm his identity.
